Did you know that over 37 million people in the United States suffer from food insecurity? Through the virtual Feds Feed Families campaign, you have a unique opportunity to help those in need.
Join DHS and other federal agencies on Tuesday, June 30, from 12:00 – 12:30 p.m., to participate in the first ever Feds Feed Families Virtual Food Drive. No registration is required. If you would like to participate, simply log in to the food drive with your name and Component. During the virtual food drive, you will have the opportunity to listen to speakers from local and national food banks discuss food insecurity in our communities and learn more about how you can help.
This year, your donations are more important than ever.
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, our nation’s food banks are facing surges in demand, declines in food donations, and disruptions to normal operating procedures. To get involved with this year’s virtual campaign you can:
- Donate Online. Purchase food online from the grocery store and have it delivered directly to a food bank or pantry.*
- Drop Off Donations. Find a food pantry* or food bank near you and drop off your donation. Call ahead to confirm any special measures they may be taking to ensure social distancing.
- Plant a Row. Plant an extra row of produce in your own garden or harvest unwanted produce from neighborhood gardens and orchards that you can donate to local food banks or pantries.
Please record your donations online in the Feds Feed Families Hub* and to your Component Feds Feed Families Champion. As federal employees, we can help others weather these uncertain times. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
